I am 18 years old and a nationally recognized youth motivational speaker available for engagements locally in the Tampa Bay Area, or across the country. I founded Sparkle Power, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity when I was 15 years old after spending a significant amount of time in the hospital and outpatient facilities. One day, I received a care package filled with small goodies and noticed that I was distracted from upcoming tests, and worse, upcoming results. I was instantly inspired to bring "sparkle" to other patients on a random day of the week with the hope that it would give them the "power" to get better faster. With the help of my mom and younger siblings, Sparkle Power, Inc was established and I began making and delivering goodie bags filled with small toys and comfort items to pediatric patients in the Tampa Bay Area. I have also hand-delivered goodie bags to children's hospitals in Georiga, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Louisiana. I have partnered with numerous small and large corporations for donations, and I work with local schools, Girl and Boy Scout Troops, book clubs, nursing homes and sports teams to help assemble goodie bags. I have been featured on several local news channels and radio stations as well as featured in numerous publications. A highlight of my work with Sparkle Power, Inc. was my appearance as a guest on Harry Connick, Jr.'s television show “Harry”. I am also well-versed with the Bible and, upon request, can seamlessly integrate verses into any speaking engagement.
